. we haven't seen anything from president obama on the deteriorating relations with russia. vladimir putin banned adoption into law. is the president's trip to moscow early next year still on? first, we have to get back to the fiscal cliff impasse and the president's decision to ask the senate leaders to make a deal. here now to ace cnbc contributor, biden's chief economist and jimmy path kukis of the american enterprise institute. will we have a deal by monday. >> >> think we are. if you had asked me before the president spoke i would have said no. >> why? >> because i can see a path. if mcconnell and reid can hammer out a deal that's acceptable to both of them i believe that john boehner will let that deal come up for a vote in the house, and i believe that vote will pass in the house though probably with majority democrat. if that happens, we may well have a deal. >> you said a big f, though. if mcconnel and reid can hammer something out. the senate hasn't passed a budget in years, jared. tell me, how is harry reid going to come up with something by monday? >> well, as you've been
from one nation to the next. it's about to happen in russia. where moscow is going to approve a ban on american couples only from adopteding russian children. we just improved our trade relations with them, why are they doing this? have our relations with the putin regime deteriorated that much? senior fellow with the center of transatlantic relations at johns hopkins university. what is this really about? >> this is about vladimir putin playing to his base which is nationalistic and poor as he's losing moscow and it's about vladimir putin sending a signal to the united states that he does not want us interfering in russia's internal affairs and this is a convenient way to send that message. >> let's, explain why they would think that with this trade status improvement there was a little clause that said if someone violates human rights in russia you're not going to be able to get a vase to get in here. what is this law called? >> the magity insky bill. >> sergei died in prison. who helped kill him. >> the reason he was in prison, he's a lawyer. he was defending a guy who is a frequ

uncertain. billionaire investor and russia's wealthiest man alisher usmanov told cnbc's geoff cutmore that rebalance of growth is need. >> 2013 will be a year where we need to search for solutions. there is a big discussion going on about the state of the global economy. everyone is involved in that debate, in that discussion about wa to do. governments, central banks, economists, businessmen, scholars. so as far as i'm concerned, what really worried me and what i think is the real cause of the uncertainty is the enormous disparity that exists between the various monetary and other derivatives on the one hand and the global gdp. the derivatives, surpass many, many times the global gdp. there is too much of that. a mechanism needs to be found to reduce this disparity, minimize it. this is the cause of the instability, the volatility, of stagnation and sometimes even political crisis. so some mechanism to get out of this disparity will need to be found. and so what i'm hoping is that in 2013, the central banks of the united states, europe, and china will find a solution to at stop the g
in on their domestic economy, you were saying latin america and russia could be the stars in the out-- and the outperformers in 2013 s. that correct? >> absolutely. okay, there's two things. i think demand, you know, even though they say china's softening, i think actually their demand for resources is continuing to stay stable because as they reshift gears into becoming a domestic economy, they still need inputs. china is not a very natural resource-rich country. they continue to need to import natural resources from both russia and latin america. japan, by the way, is a huge story for 2013. i think japan is going to control their currency issues and really going to start pushing up export. so they're going to be pulling in natural resources from russia, as well. i think both russia as well as latin america are going to be huge performers. of course, government reform plays a big role in that. but i think that's also looking good. >> thank you, ron. so great to get your insight this morning. that's ron shaw with gina ventures. >> thank you. >>> all right. coming up on the show, want

korea, china, russia, the arab lock that are trying to control the internet and i find it fascinating that among the biggest trading partners, tell us what is going on. >> rick, it's supposed to be on telecommunications, not on the internet. and what became clear very early on is proposals that you mentioned from russia, china, a variety of arab states to interject the internet into the discussion. as you know, there are two big concerns with that. number one is freedom. we do not want to create even the smallest of doors opening that would run the risk that there would be content censorship. the second thing is, it provides a huge wealth of opportunities and it does well candidly when it's being left alone. when innovation can happen, infrastructure side, content side, et cetera. so we made a very strong statement at the end of the conference a that we were not going to sign this treaty. we had, as you know, 55 nations said either they were going to not sign or think about it more, which obviously is a sign of more concern. and this is part avalon ger, broader discussion that needs t

as provocative while china and russia expressed regret. for more we're joined from by beijing by nbc reporter ian williams. ian, it seems to be a secretary launch. certainly more successful than one earlier in the year. what is the reaction there? >> reporter: that's right, rot. certainly more successful because, of course, that rocket earlier in the year burned out shortly after it left the ground. now across the region, there's been anger and dismay. but also a little bit of surprise because it had looked at the week, at the weekend like this launch might be delayed. the north incited technical reasons, but there was speculation that perhaps china, which had expressed deep concern, was putting pressure on behind the scenes. now a lot of the outrage we've seen has been predictable from japan, from south korea, from the u.s. but the chinese reaction has been a little bit more nuanced. they expressed that deep concern ahead of the rocket launch. and today they were wrapping themselves up in diplomatic contortionism if finding a way of responding saying they regretted it, that the north koreans sho
